Mastiff Diet

What Should I Feed My Mastiff?

About Mastiffs
The Mastiff is one of the oldest recognized dog breeds. He was bred to be a fierce war dog, quite distinct from the kind, gentle giant that he has transitioned into today. He is an excellent companion if you can handle his enormous size. In fact, the Mastiff is the largest breed in the world, weighing in at 220 pounds or more. A Mastiff named Zorba holds the 1989 Guinness Book of Records for weighing 323 pounds. The Mastiff's size makes him appear fierce, but his temperament is one of good-natured acquiescence unless danger threatens his family.

Feeding Requirements
We recommend feeding eight to 10 cups of dog food a day, divided into three to five smaller meals to avoid bloat, which is fatal in Mastiffs. Choose a premium, high-quality dog food for your Mastiff with no by-products or added chemicals. Make sure that the formula is holistic, all-natural, and grain-free. Grains such as soy, wheat, and corn are all allergen-causing fillers added to inexpensive dog food. Select a dog food developed by veterinarians and made in the U.S.A.

 

Nutritional Requirements 
There are specific nutritional requirements for your Mastiff. It is good to start your puppy on adult food because they are giant breed dogs. The protein levels in most puppy foods are too high for giant breeds, causing them to grow too rapidly. The ideal protein level is around 25 percent but no greater than 28 percent. Keeping calcium and phosphorus ratios equal can help prevent Hypertrophic Osteodystrophy or Panosteitis, which are both extremely painful and crippling conditions if not treated with a balanced diet. An antioxidant-rich diet provides vitamins and nutrients his body needs to absorb nutrition properly. The best food is one that is designed to meet your Mastiff's individual nutritional needs, such as his age, health issues, and activity level.
